Can I get a pap when I'm on my period?

I have one for tomorrow and I started my period this morning. I can't really reschedule it due to timing. I'm sure the doctor has seen worse, right? Do I tell them I'm on my period? Should I be embarrassed about going on my period?

  • No, from what my Dr. has told me, they can't. You need to call them and tell them.

  • No. My test came up inconclusive because I was on my last day! So I had to take the whole test all over again.

  • I have had mine done while on my period. I just tell them and they really don't care - call your Gyne and ask them
